Malaysia Airlines has been running a sales blitz in the UK, visiting its travel agent partners.

The three-day event, which started on Tuesday, is sandwiched between Malaysia Independence Day (August 31) and Malaysia Day (September 16).

Malaysia Airlines’ teams have visited Trailfinders, Virgin Holidays, Southall Travel, Kuoni, Travel Bag, STA Travel and Flight Centre.

Cabin crew dressed in traditional Malay outfits gave goody bags to agents during the visits.

The sales blitz has offered agents the chance to win a place on the airline’s exclusive fam trip in November. This week-long tour will include a visit to the Petronas Twin Towers, a Jet Ski tour of Langkawi Archipelago, a walking guide of Penang’s George Town and a gala dinner in Kuala Lumpur.

Adrian Keating, Malaysia Airlines regional manager for the UK & Europe said: “We are excited to be celebrating with the trade to mark two momentous days in Malaysia’s history. As part of our collaboration with Tourism Malaysia we are confident that these activities will inspire the trade to put magical Malaysia at the forefront of holidays they offer. As the national carrier, with double daily services from London, we are very proud to showcase the incredibly diverse destinations we serve across Malaysia.’’
